  2. I reject the implication that I misread your post or missed your overall point.

    If you hadn’t made a positive statement that included a false implication about what McCain was asked, I wouldn’t have said a word.

    If people are misstating what a candidate has said, bloggers have a special duty not to imply that the misstatement is correct.

    I do appreciate the update, if not its grudging nature.

  3. I don’t want to start another confrontation. Let me say this, however, and you can respond as you see fit. I have no doubt you understand the basic issue.

    However, my point is that even your post about the TP’s post on the subject underscores my point–McCain’s statement was sufficiently problematic that it resulted in a rather lengthy post to refute a portion of a sentence. I am not saying that the basic refutation isn’t basically correct.

    My point remains that McCain’s original sentence was politically clumsy, if not stupid and the fact that supporters have to go around pointing he meant, or knows simply underscores my basic point.

    Same thing with McCain’s statement about computers last week. Ultimately who cares if the president can use a PC or not, the bottom line, however, is that it makes him sound old, and that isn’t to his benefit.
